not sure the location you're referring to...on my hatchback, there is a heat shield near the gas tank; brackets look tack-welded and easily break, might not be obvious from a cursory examination. If that's your culprit, you might hear rattling when driving over bumps or potholes, and is a very simple jury-rig fix.
